LAKE PLACID - On July 4 the Lake Placid Sinfonietta will perform a outdoor musical celebration that will be free to all attendees, thanks in part to the sponsorship of Champlain National Bank.
Music selections will include a variety of patriotic tunes in keeping with the July 4 holiday, including some of America's favorite celebratory marches. The concert will begin after the village's annual parade at approximately 7 p.m .
"Our summer season begins with the first of our weekly Wednesday evening concerts in Mid's Park," said Sinfonietta board President Barbara Erickson, "and runs through Sunday evening, August 12. This generous gift from Champlain National Bank gets us started on our way to a financially successful season."
Barbara Erickson, left, president of the Lake Placid Sinfonietta board of directors, receives a check in the amount of $1,000 from Lake Placid Branch Manager Jackie Roy on behalf of Champlain National Bank and bank President Jon Cooper. The gift will sponsor the Champlain National Bank Celebrates America concert July 4 in Mid’s Park in downtown Lake Placid.
Ron Spigelman, in his third full year as music director of the Sinfonietta, will present six informal midweek concerts, six more formal weekend concerts at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and several additional appearances at various locations in and around the Adirondack Park.
"We're on our way to our glorious 100th season in 2017," said Spigelman, "and support such as this sponsorship from Champlain National Bank is a major factor in preserving this unmatched cultural heritage."
